11:39 pm
soo li oca n.t t t pt.etio if we have learned anything
11:40 pm
teams that do the most damage in the playoffs aren't necessarily the ones with the best records. it's always the ones playing the best football in december. right now, the jets are in the thick of it. it's hard to believe the jets hadn't won three in a row in three years. it's hard to believe that the entire 56 year run of the franchise, the jets have never had two receivers who have scored 9 touchdowns each. eric decker and brandon marshal will be forever linked, and we still have three more games to go. last year jets fans would have done anything to have marcus mariota with the top pick in the draft. that's him on the receiving end. that was tennessee's only touchdown of the game. while the former heisman trophy winner might have broken up the price. the defense put the rookie on his back five times.
11:41 pm
alive and well 8-5 right now after today's 22 point win at metlife stadium. >> we're out there having fun. got the teammates flying around making plays. >> it was a big win because we understand what's on the line. all of these games down the stretch are big wins. >> when you have a great team, this is the time you usually click. in november, december, and going into the postseason. you know today was was an example of that. >> is there such a thing as a trap game? >> the golden state warriors, you can have a trap game. we're not that good. >> honestly, the jets have not had a day like this in a long time. a complete domination on both sides of the ball. our otis livingston was the sideline reporter for the game. he asked was this the best game of the year for the jets? >> i think it was.
11:42 pm
the 2nd half, but they were kind of on cruise control. they're going up and down the field. they didn't have a punt in the 1st half. they could have actually had more points. ryan fitzpatrick did a great job again. they use the pass to set up the run and use the power run game in the 2nd half, to push this away. >> another huge game for the jets, as they continue their march toward the playoffs. how do they get geared up for the cowboys next week? >> i think they need to be geared up the rest of the way. people worry about today being a trap game, but they have everything to play for right now. they could still finish 10-6 and miss out on the playoffs. i think the most vision is that it's sort of a playoff game every week. and yeah, tony romo is not in there for the cowboys.
11:43 pm
i think really the jets are looking towards ryan fitzpatrick, and brandon marshal kind of leading the charge. the motivation and the hunger is there. the momentum is there, that giant overtime win, i think definitely buoyed them. this is my favorite time of the month. we bring in a man you can hear every saturday night from 6:00 to 10:00. david amandala joins us in studio again. >> that was nice, steve. >> that's the only kind things we're going to say. there are 10 teams in yours and my league. there are six teams that make the postseason. four are out. i'm out. >> and you're out. >> >> why would people listen to our fantasy advice? >> they shouldn't. that's why i blame you.
11:44 pm
this was all your stupid idea. >> did you at least out-score mraz? >> once i went on my five game skid. >> let's talk about the real teams and the jets. can you believe that the last three jets coaches have all made the playoffs in their first season? so todd bowles is on the right path right now. >> yes, except those last three guys got burned out quickly in the locker room. mangini, herm edwards, and rex ryan. their consistency wasn't there year in and year out. i think what it shows is a new voice in the locker room can really invigorate the locker room. the key to great coaches is that the message doesn't wane in coming years. todd bowles coming in is doing what a lot of jets coaches have done. but he will be judged what he does. >> it seems like every week is the same old song with this team. yet, they're still in the playoff hunt.
11:45 pm
the season for the giants this year. >> i hate to say it, but i think that the way the season has unfolded is evidence that tom coughlin needs to go. it's just that there have been too many times over the last five years where it felt like this. that they put their backs against a wall. but they lost games they shouldn't have early. maybe they mismanaged games down the stretch, and that they're in desperation, urgent, must win mode, and yes, it's worked a couple of times for the super bowls, but it doesn't always work. i just think, if it's going like this, this is more of a pattern and a trend than an anomaly for tom coughlin. >> from what we understand, the guy is the first one up at 5:00 a.m., he's doing all the research, and all the work. can you say that sometimes the game may have passed someone buy, or is it just bad luck? >> steve, tom coughlin is a great guy, but if i got up every morning at 4:00 a.m., and had the worst ratings every year, it wouldn't matter how
11:46 pm
history was. unfortunately, that's it for tom coughlin. the thing is, he's a great coach in this franchise's history, but the winning has run out. if he's going to miss the playoffs for 6 out of 7 years, that's just not good enough. >> what does is say that this is being promoted as the top receivers against one another. odell beckham jr. and jarvis landry. >> it doesn't say anything great about either franchise, when you've got to sell the wide receivers in december. unfortunately, this feels a lot like when the bengals and oilers used to play in december, or the jaguars and the colts. it's like, hey there's good players kind of on tv. do you want to watch football? >> let's get to baseball. the winter meetings just wrapped up. wall street journal's jared diamond did a really nice piece on the finances of the sport. that these top flight pitchers
11:47 pm
that is $1 million a start. >> it's crazy. and i think that's where the resentment lies with the fans. you can't even really wrap your mind around $30 million a year to go out and play a game 30 times. >> why should that matter to fans? >> i think it matters because we're at a point where we can absorb, and accept certain bench marks, but it keeps sky rising every year, to where it forces us to adjust every year. >> what's the difference between 25 and $30 million? it's all big numbers, but the mets, they had a chance at zobrist. swing and a miss on zobrist. but they ended up still picking up walker and cabrera. >> they absolutedly did steve. i believe not signing zobrist is a blessing in disguise. i don't want to be locked into a four you're contract for a
11:48 pm
a guy that's already 35. they upgraded, they added depth. what we learned last year is once they acquire the guys at the deadline, you can never have too many options. that's what the mets are doing, adding options. >> yankees, it has been 12 years since both middle infielders for the pinstripers have been under 30. they are clearly making an effort to try to get younger, even though their handcuffed by all of these salaries. >> steve, the game has changed under the yankees feet. there's more money in baseball than ever before, so lesser franchises can afford to keep their guys or sign others. the diamondbacks spent all of this money on the zach greinke deal. >> they used to have 10 guys, all big name players, but now it doesn't seem like they have any marketable, identifiable players for this team. >> it's alex rodriguez. that's it.

football will have crowned its national champion. who will it be? >> clemson, they're an underdog in their first game. probably an underdog in their second game. i like the tigers. >> the warriors just lost. will they have 4 losses? >> they're going to lose 3 more times in 22 games? no. i think they'll lose twice before them. this is an amazing story. if you're not a warriors fan, it's okay. watch this. this story unfolding is absurd. they're amazingly good. historically good. >> you're saying they're only going to lose 2 more times in the next 22 games. >> they only lost once in the first 30 games. >> "star wars," a month from now, will it still be number 1 in america? >> no, it will drop to number 2, but it will be the highest box office blitz in the last ten years. >> how can you not expect "star
